  • Description


    I'm Salla (26). I have a husband and one daughter, 5 years old. We live in Lapland; a small village called Pello. Pello is a quiet village, here live ~3300 inhabitants. We live in a detached house by the river.

    I'm social and i'm talking a lot. But no worries, i may be a little quiet at first when i don’t speak English very well. 😄 I'm "funny" and loving mother. We joke a lot. My hobby is gym, fire department and snowmobiling. Our daughter is really sweet. She is also social and she have a good sense of humor. She has come to shes mother.🤭 When we are happy we laugh and when we are sad we cry. My husband also hobby snowmobiling in the winter. We are relaxed and we like to go partying sometimes. But i also like the rules. Our daughter have certain limits and she is mannerly.

    I'm a paramedic and always work 24 hours a day (+trip to work in total 300km), after that i have two days off. My husband have own company and usually he working weeks away from home. So we are a lot of two with my daughter.

    We are looking for traveler mainly for the winter.❄️

    I hope you are brisk. I want you to little help me with housework and childcare. The child is usually in kindergarten when i am at work and she goes to her grandparents for the night. So you also get your own time. And if everything going ok and if you want you can be also have nights with a child. This is not obligatory, as grandparents are happy to take her for a night a couple of nights a week.

    In the winter weekend we want to go snowmobiling when you could take care of our children. The trip takes a few hours maybe.

    In winter you can also do as much snow work as you want and can handle.😂

    We dont speak english very well. I'm ashamed when i write this i have to resort to a translator..😳 So it would be time to learn and dare to speak english and everyday language i will definitely learn more. Also our daughter is at a good age to learn a little bit other language.
